The snow is almost, about, nearly gone. In the hollows and in shaded places it continues to stick stubbornly but in most places it is vanished.
Meanwhile, I scribble like crazy. Also, I prepare to go to MO for a visit. I'd planned to go anyway but my mother needs circulation restored to her diabetic foot in an attempt to save it from amputation so I will take her in for that procedure in 48 hours. My brother who lives with her has run out of vacation time due to his own accident at Christmastime, so they are very happy I can take her.
I'll leave in a couple of hours. There is lots to post about but it seems to all go into my journal versus here. I will stay in Sioux City IA this evening and get to my hometown of Sedalia MO by around 3 in the afternoon tomorrow. My brother will cook up some fish for dinner tomorrow night.
I liken Mom's situation to what would happen if one never did oil changes on one's car--it falls apart, as does the human body if it is neglected. One ignores diabetes at one's great peril.
My family covets your prayers.
